    Step 3: Plan and organize your essay
    Compare and contrast essays should have a structure similar to this one:
    – An introduction.
    – One or two paragraphs discussing the less important things (that is, similarities if it is a writing paper service, differences if it is a comparison essay).
    – Other one or two paragraphs, now referring to the main things.
    – An essay conclusion, in where you close your work and give some general ideas on other facts that could have been compared.
    Another possible structure begins by describing the first item, and then describing the second one by comparing different aspects of it with the first one.

    Step 4: Write a good introduction
    You can’t compare a writing desk with a crow, as Lewis Carroll humorously demonstrated in Alice in Wonderland. So prove from the beginning your whole essay has a point. You may find obvious the reasons you choose for comparing the given items. But the reader will not necessarily share your opinions. So you want to start your comparison by explaining the purpose of your work: for example, what do Vietnam War and WWII have in common?

    Step 5: Quote plenty of authorities
    Your comparison can’t be based on common sense alone, and it has probably been done before. Who has written something about it? Check the library, surf the web and read as much as you can. And then, build your comparison with the help of authorities you can quote.

    There you have it! A great comparative essay in five steps!
